Awesome tour! Well worth the money! Five of us did this tour and it was the most amazing and spectacular part of our trip to Chicago. The narrator of the tour was funny and kept us entertained the entire hour. I most certainly would do this again!!

John Hancock Observatory Admission

Chicago, Illinois

My Rating
2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better

My Review

The views on top of the tower are amazing, but the price is a little too steep if you ask me. Staff were unfriendly and at times rude. The only friendly one was the one pushing to sell the pictures they take of your group before going up (which cost more than the price of admission! EXPENSIVE!).

My Review

MUST DO WHILE IN SYDNEY!! Well worth every cent!! Bret was our tour guide and I must say he was THE BEST!! The person I went and did this with is extremely scared of heights. Bret did all he could do to make sure he calmed his nerves to make sure he had a good time. TWO THUMBS UP TO BRET!!

As far as the price, I thought it was reasonable. It included the use of all equipment. One photo of the group while on top of the bridge. The baseball cap they give you to wear plus any additional hats you want to take home. And, free admission to the Pylon Towers.

As far as the climb itself, there are two parts that are scary. The first and last leg to get up to the actual bridge. The stairs were like at a 90 degree angle. That's quite a steep climb! I'm not scared of heights, but man, there were times I got scared!! Once on the bridge, it wasn't bad at all. Incline was small with railings to protect you. The views of the city were amazing!! Even though I did the 3 o'clock tour, I could only imagine what it would have looked like taking the twlight or night tour!! Once you're on top of the bridge, take advantage of the 8 second video clip they offer to take of you!! IT'S FREE AT THE END. They give you link to have it sent to your e-mail address. As mentioned before, they give you a free small photo of the group with a cardboard frame. Purchasing additional photos are quite costly. I think it was like $75 for three photos. So, take advantage of that video clip!!!

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED TO DO AT LEAST ONCE IN YOUR LIFE!!!

Sydney Harbour Dinner Cruise by Catamaran

Sydney, Australia

My Rating
2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better

My Review

Probably wouldn't do this again.

PROS: The food was excellent and had a wide variety to choose from. The views of Sydney were breathtaking!!

CONS: The service needed improving! SERIOUS IMPROVING!! Not one happy camper working on this ship. When you'd ask for something or for some help locating something, it's like you were bothering them. Kind-of made me feel uncomfortable when I did have to ask for help. And when they did assist you, unfortunately, you had to hear their moans and groans like you were asking them to do something majorly difficult. I didn't pay all that money to be around miserable people. I went there to have a good time.

WHAT AN AWESOME TIME!! I probably had the most fun during my stay in Sydney doing this!! If you should go, SIT IN THE LAST ROW!! You get more of the spinning action going on back there. I was scared when I first got on, but it's really not that scary. It was more fun than anything. And for the price compared to the prices to do things in Sydney, THIS IS A DEAL!! I would highly recommend it!!

Mont Saint Michel Day Trip

Paris, France

My Rating
2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better

My Review

This is just my opinion, but personally I wasn't too impressed. Not with Mont Saint Michel, but with the tour instead. First, the seating was very tight with little leg room (I am only 5'8" and 155lbs). You were not allowed to use the toilet on the bus unless it was an emergency. There were three tours going on at the same time: English, Japanese and Italian. Halfway through the journey, the bus had to stop for a half an hour break which really added traveling time onto your trip. When we got to Mont Saint Michel, we were sent to a restaurant for lunch. We had to sit with rude travelers and travelers who just had to dominate the table. Annoying. You had no selections of what you could eat. They picked it for you. Half of the food was just nasty! When you went on the tour the earsets that you received on the tour kept breaking up and the guide rushed you through everything. I don't even know what he said most of the time. But then again, with Italian and Japanese tours going on at the same time, it all sounded like mumbo-jumbo by this point. Even though Mont Saint Michel was a sight to behold, I really was not impressed with this tour at all.

Skip the Line: Small-Group Eiffel Tower Sunset Tour

Paris, France

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review

The only real benefit to this tour was being able to skip the line. For me, that was well worth the money. As far as the tour itself, I really thought it was a waste of time as the guide wasn't that knowledgeable. I ended up leaving the tour and just went on my own. Should you go to the Eiffel Tower, the one thing I must say is GO TO THE THIRD LEVEL!! THE VIEWS WERE AMAZING!!
